The successful quitter finds ways to protect and safeguard their primary motivations so that they remain robust, alive and available at a
moment's notice to fuel the patience needed to transition this temporary period of adjustment called "quitting."
The intelligent quitter's strategy combines an understanding of the law of addiction - one puff of nicotine equals relapse - with
well-protected core motivations.

From John's original post above:
"As simple as it may sound, dreams and desires born of honest recognition of tobacco's impact upon our life have the
amazing ability to fuel change, but it takes keeping those original honest motivations in the forefront and driver's seat of our mind so that they can
both consciously and subconsciously guide us home."

Yes, Star, just one powerful puff of nicotine and 8-10 seconds later it will occupy roughly 40% of your brain's nicotinic type acetylcholine
receptors, and (possibly though coughing, dizzy and a face wearing changing shades of green) will create an explosion of dopamine that your brain's pay
attention pathways are designed not to allow you forget. Your once again fooled limbic mind will again see nicotine use as a species survival event akin to
eating, bonding and mating. Using urges, promised anticipatory aaah sensations and possibly even craves, the limbic mind will soon be begging for more.
It's over. The key to your arrested dependency's cell (just one powerful puff) has been turned. The law of addiction has been violated. It's time
to again trade places with it and do time behind bars.
Still just one rule for each of us ... no nicotine today!

"The successful quitter does not try to
forget what their health was like while smoking, what it felt like to be controlled, the growing sense of becoming a social outcast, or that feeling as we
stood at the tobacco counter and paid our hard earned money to purchase the more than 4,000 chemicals contained in each cigarette that would slowly destroy our
body and mind. The successful quitter keeps such memories - and others - in the forefront fo their mind as hones reminders and motivations to fuel their
dreams and desires." John
